    A hub listing synonymns is not a "good first hub" smile

    If it's okay...let me get out my thesaurus and get to work...

      I had to go look-see what you were talking about! You are right, that is not a good first hub despite what the commenter says!

      Excellent info for spinners though smile

      Cool, Susan!  Be sure to list synonyms for "Elite"!  LOL!  I cannot believe I was added to a FB page called the HubPages Elite without my permission, especially after I tried so hard to make my feelings known about the word itself.  And then having to plead to be removed from the group was not funny to me.  smile

        Randy, whenever you want to leave a group on Facebook all you have to do is go to the drop down menu within that group and click on leave group.

          I appreciate this info!  Let me add this.  I have nothing against the others who were in the group as those whose writing I'm familiar are indeed great people.  I would feel such a hypocrite if I remained there with the present title.  Sorry!

      lol    ......and is it public or elitely private????    hmm

  2. Uninvited Writer profile image82
    Uninvited Writerposted 6 years ago

    It is for all hubbers. I think the point was to say that all hubbers are elite... Anyway, they are thinking of changing the title.

    1. calpol25 profile image66
      calpol25posted 6 years agoin reply to this

      I agree UW it was not meant as Elite being people who are a cut above but its mainly older hubbers working with new ones to give them confidence in writing hubs and also providing guidance to them as a place they can come and talk and seek help sad
      No offence meant but I think Randy you are over reacting...

      1. Randy Godwin profile image92
        Randy Godwinposted 6 years agoin reply to this

        You are free to think I'm overacting, CP.  The group was started during the time I was discussing the relevance of the word Elite as used here and by a member of the Elite who I had made known my views on the subject.  To then add my name to a group bearing the same name without consulting me first is overreacting?

        Perhaps it's just me, but I'm beginning to wonder what some people are thinking here, or if they indeed are!  lol

          I get what you are saying Randy, but remember this group's intentions like any other can be taken two ways.

          It can be looked on as a joke, something uplifting, ironic whatever.

          Or it can judged to be misguided and derogatory.

          I would go with the former...where's my invite? (lol just kidding!)

              Where did I slam the entire group, Cal?  Perhaps if you read the thread you would understand why I didn't like being added.  I stated I liked the people, not the title.  And if you read the thread you would discover the person who began the group was one of the most vociferous in defending the word as used here.

              I'm not angry, just disappointed at the way things seem to be heading on HP.  I'm merely one person though, and HP runs their business as they please.  As I said earlier, you are entitled to your opinion.  smile

                Sorry Randy I apologize I know you did not slam the group, I take back what I said and I do understand, I shall delete my comment and I openly admit hands up that I was wrong there smile

                Will you come back if they change the title?

                  No problem, Cal!  smile  I'm not really fond of FB groups as it is, but I would have been pleased to associate with the group under other circumstances.  But no, I don't want them to change the group name just because of my problems with the present one.  If they feel the name is no problem I have no problem with them doing whatever they choose.  I merely didn't like being added under the known circumstances.  Otherwise, no big deal!  smile

        Nope - no stick figure there.  A cute little guy - I rather like it - but...where is the evil?  Everyone knows that all snakes are evil!  Maybe a couple of horns, or an apple strapped to his back?

          Mark has his own list of things he will not do and evil is something he charges extra for.  Principles mean something to him....and he charges more for them! lol

                Thanks Randy! It was exciting yesterday, but died down a bit today.  I've been following your Elite saga and not doing anything else really. Oh and watching Snakey evolve.

            I don't know that it is actually a matter of principle.  Mark is a ghost - you can tell because he looks just like Casper - and we all know that ghosts are evil, too.  We also know this because he sucks the laughter right out of people, probably storing it in some kind of nefarious machine.

            Mark just doesn't want to lose any of that valuable commodity (evil) by putting it into your snake.

                You've been reading his hubs, right?  And laughed so much there just wasn't any left!  That's the way he works - very insidiously, encouraging you to spend all your laughter on his stuff and then there isn't any left.
